Theresa sent me this link to an interesting reflection on spirituality and dating: Preparing spiritually before dating at Evangelical Catholicism.
I like the fact that she emphasizes a range of devotions: journaling, the divine mercy chaplet, reading the bible, praying the liturgy of the hours and not only the rosary. Too often I see only the rosary advocated and while it is a great devotion it ignores the broader range of practices.
Looks like theres more good advice to come too.
I wish I’d thought about some of these things when I was lonely and single, it would have lightened the burdens of the journey. Although I do think that the ones I did begin to practice (praying the divine office, going to daily mass, etc. helped make me ready for meeting Dom and being ready to be a wife and mother.
